Mayor's Court, Saturday.

--The cases before his Honor, on Saturday, were more numerous than important in character. Tobias Pearsall, of the Star Saloon, was summoned up for keeping his house open after 10 o'clock on sundry occasions, when the ordinance demanded it should be shut. The case was laid over for another hearing. James McDonald was fined for a similar violation of the ordinance. Case of Anthony, slave of Spotts & Harvey, for threatening to assault James Edwards, was continued till Tuesday. Earnest Noke was committed to jail as a suspicious person. Ira Richardson, suspicious in looks and hailing from Washington, D. C., here without ostensible business, was sent to jail.--So was Byron W. Bernard, alias Camp, a kind of Confidence Jeremy Diddler, whose case has heretofore been mentioned. Virginia Lee, free negro, was committed on failing to give security for her good behavior. She had been disturbing the peace of the neighborhood in which she lived. John Curren was sent to prison for beating his wife. Catharine Kay and Mary Sullivan were required to give surety, for making a personal attack on Margaret Sullivan. Josiah Davis gave $100 security for his good behavior, and was released. Adolph Zehle, an alleged suspicious and treasonable person, was up, but the examination into his case was not gone into.
